Editors Corner Walter M Schirra Jr. was one of the original seven astronauts and the only man to fly in the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs.

in the Pacific Ocean.

The quick witted Navy captain, who was affectionately known as Wally, was the fifth American in space when NASA’s manned space program was young and untested. His October 3rd, 1962, Mercury flight, which lasted a mere 9 hours, 13 minutes and 11 seconds, was considered textbook perfect. The capsule splashed down just 4.5 miles from the aircraft carrier Kearsarge

But his next mission, as commander of Gemini 6, started badly. The launch was aborted once after an unmanned satellite blew up in space, where Gemini 6 was supposed to rendezvous with it. The mission was delayed a second time when the Titan II engines beneath the space capsule ignited at countdown and then shut down. Asked later what he thought while sitting on the launchpad, Captain Schirra replied, “This was all put together by the lowest bidder.” If you are employed by a Fortune 1000 company, particularly if you manufacture mission/life critical parts, and you are outsourcing to some of the approximately 18,000 precision machine shops in the US – then the phrase “This was all put together by the lowest bidder.” should give you some thought when you are next selecting your suppliers. Total cost should encompass metrics such as quality, on time delivery, and price – not just price. Ensure that those who take the time to make your parts right are in your selection criteria. On another note, do you feel that your online presence accurately and positively reflects your company? It’s 2022—so you’ve probably realized by now that your website has an effect on the perceived credibility and quality of your business. But very few people know just how colossal this effect actually is. In fact, many businesses struggle to turn underperforming websites into websites that actually boost credibility and client acquisition. I have looked long and hard for a company to partner with for my advertisers, one who specializes in small businesses, and I don’t mean 500 employee businesses, I mean those companies with less than 50 employees. I needed this company to provide such services as Web design, SEO, and Social Media, and to do it really cost effectively. I believe I found it with the team at The SMB Hub. It takes about 50 milliseconds (that’s 0.05 seconds) for users to form an opinion about your website that determines whether they like your site or not, whether they’ll stay or leave. I challenge you to let The SMB Hub give you vital statistics on the health of your online presence. It’s free. Go to thesmbhub.com/snapshot-report I promise this snapshot will be eye opening. I ran the report for one of my customers that spends considerable time and money on their online presence and their overall marketing. I was shocked to learn that their website garnered a ‘D’. Until next issue, I wish you the best. As always, God Bless our Troops, our healthcare providers and our First Responders. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Phoenix Waterjet Is Now Phoenix Waterjet & Laser With Its Purchase of the Bystronic 3015 BySmart Fiber Laser



E S T . 2 0 0 7




More than 4 decades ago, Jim Ugalde founded Phoenix Ornamental Iron Supply. In the early years, TY U PE • PROD the company purchased industrial equipment to manufacture high end ornamental metal products. Once the company purchased its Flow waterjet, it expanded its business to offer waterjet services to job shops, and it called this side of its operations ‘Phoenix Waterjet’. Jim’s sons, Dan and Chris, worked the family business from the time they were teenagers, and Dan joined the company once he graduated from Arizona State University armed with a degree in business. Younger brother Chris joined the business shortly after. T


Sadly, Jim recently lost his battle with cancer. “He taught us everything we know, including how to run machines and how to run the business”, Dan says. Months ago, the company added the Bystronic 3015 Smart Fiber laser to their shop. “We were outsourcing laser cutting”, Dan says, “but we knew that taking it in-house would help our turn-around times.” Today, the company can offer 5-7 days turnaround for most standard orders. Chris says, “If you don’t have a print, we have the ability to 3-D scan your part, and we can re-engineer it with our Faro Arm scan and probe.” The company offers its services to a variety of industries, including: aerospace,

defense, automotive, construction, oil and gas, among others.

Raytheon Gets New Stinger Missile Contract As War In Ukraine Boosts Demand Raytheon Technologies’ Tucson-based Missiles & Defense division will be producing hundreds of new Stinger missiles under a new $624 million contract with the U.S. Army. The deal calls for Raytheon to produce 1,300 of the versatile air defense missiles that can be rapidly deployed by ground troops, as well as provide engineering support, testing and modernization of components. Stinger missiles have gained notoriety in recent months for their effective use by Ukrainian troops against the Russian invasion of that country launched by President Vladimir Putin in February. In fact, the missiles’ use in Ukraine is the reason for the current contract, which is being funded through the recently passed Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, which provided more than $40 billion to support Ukraine against Russia and take other steps to defend global democracy. Raytheon’s mission under the deal includes accelerating production as demand for the missiles has increased and the U.S. military has needed to replenish its stocks that have already been sent to Ukraine.The company said it is working closely with the Army and its suppliers to handle the growing demand. “We’re aligned with the U.S. Army on a plan that ensures we fulfill our current foreign military A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

sale order, while replenishing Stingers provided to Ukraine and accelerating production,” Wes Kremer, president of Raytheon Missiles & Defense, said in a statement. “The funding will be used to enhance Stinger’s producibility in an effort to meet the urgent need for replenishment.” The company says the lightweight, selfcontained Stinger system gives the ground troops an operational edge against cruise missiles and all classes of aircraft. The system has supersonic speed and uses an agile and highly accurate guidance and control system. Earlier in May, the company was awarded a $102.69 million contract modification with the U.S. Navy to produce the Overthe-Horizon Weapon System. That system adds long-range anti-ship and anti-surface capability through a system that includes an operator console, an encanistered missile and a launching system.By Jeff Gifford – Phoenix Business Journal

Introducing The Center for Industrial Technology (CIT), Complete With 5-Axis Machining and Automation with the Newest Haas Lathe With Live Tooling Machines that produce highprecision parts are significant capital investments. For this reason, you will often see older machines in Community C o l l e g e s and Technical Institutes where training to become a machinist occurs. These institutions often do not have the budget to upgrade their equipment as frequently as the industry does. “That is not the case at GateWay Community College,” says Dave Zamora, Program Director and Faculty member at GateWay’s Washington Campus, pictured with a student on the next page. “Through our partnership with Ellison Machinery, the dealer for Haas machines, we are upgrading our machines with the latest technology.” He continued, “The Haas UMC-500 that we are now installing combines the 5-axis capability of Haas’ industry-leading UMC-750, with the design improvements of their larger UMC-1000, to create a powerful 5-axis solution with a small footprint.” Zamora elaborated, “The Haas ST-20Y lathes that we just purchased offer a completely redesigned turning center that provides even more performance, features, and value than ever before. These lathes offer a more rigid machine, with larger bar capacity, superior cutting performance, and a host of productivity-enhancing options. We opted for the live tooling option, which boosts productivity by allowing secondary operations – such as side or end of part milling, drilling, or tapping – to be performed in a single setup, on one machine.” Zamora says that the new Haas machines will enable the machinists in the program to manufacture parts as they would in an advanced machine shop. “With older equipment, you are making a part with multiple setups and multiple machines. It is time-consuming and it adds to the opportunity for error. With our new machines, students will learn on the advanced equipment they will see once they are out in the industry.” Likewise, he says, “We spend less time teaching dial indicators to set up parts and more time teaching students to become proficient with probing and digital setup tools on our advanced machines.” The new machines are part of a larger strategy to expand the college’s educational A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

footprint in manufacturing and skilled trades. Lindsey Wilson, GateWay Public Relations & Marketing Director, says, “As a leader in workforce development training, GateWay Community College is no stranger to meeting the needs of business and industry in Arizona. With nearly 4 million skilled-trade job vacancies across the country, the college is rising to the occasion to address the shortage by launching the brand new Center for Industrial Technology (CIT).” With new equipment and a remodel underway, the new center brings together five of the college’s existing programs: Industrial Design Technology, Automotive, HVAC, Water Resources and Environmental Science Technology, and Water and Wastewater Treatment. While the programs have existed for some time, the center is providing a renovation to the facilities and equipment, creating better access to the existing state-ofthe-art labs. “We know the demand is there through our business and municipal partners. At GateWay, we know how to train workers more efficiently than anyone,” said Dr. Craig Urbanski, division chair for the Center of Industrial Technology. “There are high-paying, highly-skilled jobs waiting for our graduates after completing our programs. People have trusted GateWay for over 50 years. They know the quality of what we do.” As the first technical college in Arizona, GateWay has emerged through the pandemic relatively unscathed. The college was recently ranked as the 2022 top community college in Arizona for the second time in three years. It was also recently rated as one of the top 50 community colleges for graduate earnings for a second year. Despite the accolades, the college recognizes more work to be done.

“All of the programs we offer through the Center for Industrial Technology have great career prospects,” said Dr. Steve Meneses, Dean of Business, Technology, and Trades at the college. “Our programs have strong industry partnerships and offer an accessible route to a better future. With the skilled labor shortage our industries face, GateWay serves a critical role in this state’s economy.” Zamora adds, “Our manufacturing program at GateWay has always been industry-focused. With this focus, we always try to procure the technology that is most widely used in the market. For machine tools, our shop uses Haas machine tools, and this isn’t just because they provide generous educational discounts, but also because the Haas machines enjoy a strong market share in the industry. Likewise, we use Mastercam and SolidWorks for our programming because these are industry leaders.” Zamora continues, We value all of our industry partners, as they often go out of their way to support our program. Stevens Engineering, Iscar, NEXGEN Tooling, American Tools & Metals, Ellison Machinery, Haas, MLC CAD Systems, Adams Machinery, Chick Workholding, and Hexagon are some of the partners that have helped us retain a high-tech manufacturing program with the latest technology.” The new Center for Industrial Technology will be hosting information sessions throughout the summer with faculty and advisors available to help students get matched to the right program. With tuition starting at just $85 per credit hour for in-state residents, GateWay has offered its students an accessible education while ensuring they are not burdened with overwhelming student debt after graduation. “The Center for Industrial Technology programs emphasize how big of a role we play in our community as a leading workforce development college,” said Dr. Amy Diaz, interim president. “Ultimately, our college’s mission has always been helping students take the most direct and affordable path to high-paying jobs. The critical industries this new center serves are vital to everyone.” With the potential for new programs on the horizon, GateWay hopes the new center will bring additional opportunities for expansion and industry partnerships. “I’ve had so many partners calling us recently, it seems like my phone has been ringing non-stop,” said Urbanski. “They need our graduates, and we need them. That is the reason our college has been so successful.” Even through the expansion, the college has continued to hone in on what it does best. “The GateWay Manufacturing Program has a laser focus on

offering programs that fill a need in the industry,” Zamora says. “Our programs are all evening programs, and they are geared for working adults, often people working in manufacturing during the day. Our entire staff, from the faculty to the adjunct instructors on our staff, all continue to work in the industry during the day, whether in a consulting role or in a shop. This is immensely helpful in ensuring our program is relevant to today’s needs.” The extra experience of the instructors helps them keep things fun and exciting for their students. ‘The Capstone Project,’ Zamora says, “Is a culmination of everything our students have learned in our program.” Rather than machine a widget which can’t be used for anything, the team must identify a functional product to build. “We’ve built a drone, lightsabers, guitars, and on this project, the team must build the entire product. We don’t do the electronics, but we incorporate the electronics into the end product.” Zamora says that the Capstone Projects are more interesting to the students because they are real, usable end products. While other community colleges offer manufacturing training, Zamora says GateWay is unique, “They typically offer entry-level programs, and often students are machining with either manual machines or old technology. At GateWay, we are equipping them with the skills to perform on the job immediately upon being hired.” He adds, “Also new to our program is hybrid class delivery where a student can participate live in-person or live remote with camera and audio. This new program will allow entry with 1 semester of pre-requisites or one year of industry experience.” What’s next for Zamora’s students? “3D metal printed components and assemblies, as well as machine loading robotics”, he says.

Massive Battery Facility For Buckeye To Double In Size, Will Break Ground This Year Shortly after closing on 214 acres in Buckeye, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho-based KORE Power has unveiled plans to double the size of its factory and significantly increase its investment in the plant. The facility will now total 2 million square feet and cost an overall $1.25 billion to build, the company said at the end of May. KORE initially planned to break ground early this year on a $1 billion, 1 million-square-foot lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant but said it has now pushed the construction start date to an unknown date later this year. The project will start operations in 2024 as opposed to 2023, while the hiring process will also "ramp up" in the third quarter of 2023, according to the city of Buckeye. KORE also said it will support its facility, dubbed KOREPlex, with a U.S.-based supply chain. In July 2021, city of Buckeye records said that the estimated average annual salary was $46,000. The company said in May that it still plans to hire about 3,000 overtime. KORE has also brought on seven team members who have relocated or will be relocating to Buckeye. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

The company initially started looking for a site for its first U.S. lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in 2018 and had eventually narrowed down its selection to Texas, Florida and the Glendale and Buckeye areas in Arizona. "I don't think any other state has demonstrated the level of support to date," the ACA said in in January 2021 that was obtained by the Business Journal. "Arizona is at the center of U.S. electric grid solar deployment and storage, is a destination state, is not vulnerable to catastrophic weather events, and has stable and pro-business political climate." The company's executives visited Arizona to meet with state officials and tour sites as Nikola Corp.'s and Arizona State University's research and development facilities in May of 2021. By June 25, 2021, KORE Power sent a formal letter to the ACA that said it had selected Arizona for its U.S. manufacturing facility but was still deciding which site within the Phoenix metro. "The pro-business environment, skilled workforce, location, quality of life, and additional factors led us to this decision. Included in that decision is the incentive letter and the commitment that Arizona has made to KORE as well as the strong relationship we have developed with you," the company said. It also asked the ACA if it could secure participation of local, state and federal representation for its announcement to build in Arizona.Phoenix Business Journal

Steel while the city of Albuquerque is kicking in another $50,000. The LEDA awards are subject to approval from Albuquerque City Council and will be allocated as Alstate Steel meets economic development benchmarks. “Our decision to stay in New Mexico was not based solely on incentives, but on the expertise of the state and local team, your leaders, and the ability to move quickly and partner with us for everyone’s success. That has stuck with me,” Jeff Wallis, Alstate Steel president, said in a statement. “The culture that I have always expressed in my companies is to care about our clients.” In March, Alstate Steel considered leaving New Mexico for a neighboring state that offered “sizable” incentives. The support from Albuquerque leaders and incentives helped keep the company here, the press release stated. The company also has a facility in Arizona, but it was unclear if that was the state that was also in contention. Danielle Casey, president and CEO of Albuquerque Regional Economic Alliance, told Albuquerque Business First the community effort to retain Alstate Steel started after AREA’s business retention and expansion program made a connection with the company through a due diligence call. Casey said AREA was following up with local companies to gather business intelligence. At that point, Alstate Steel confirmed it was about to decide if it was going to stay in New Mexico, Casey said. On its website, Alstate Steel said both the Albuquerque and Phoenix locations are steel fabrication facilities. Alstate Steel fabricates iron, steel and other metals for large structural purposes like bridges and buildings. Its customers include Intel, Amazon, Fidelity, Netflix, University of New Mexico, Facebook, Lovelace Health System, Presbyterian Healthcare Service snd Starbucks, according to the news release.

Introducing continental precision Before new owner Nawed Akhtar took over Continental Precision at the beginning of this year, the AS9100 Revision D certified company owned a number of outstanding precision machines, including those manufactured by OKK, Matsuura, Mazak, Hitachi Seiki, Mori Seiki, and Citizen, amongst others.

Nawed says, “I p u r c h a s e d Continental Precision in part because of its outstanding equipment, as well as its established customer base.” Since its inception more than a half century ago, both NASA’s Space Shuttle Program and the International Space Station have been outfitted with parts and components manufactured by Continental Precision. Their other customers include such renowned industry giants as Boeing, Motorola, General Dynamics, Honeywell, Northrup Grumman, Parker Aerospace, Nammo Tally, Goodrich Corp, and medical device manufacturer Bard Peripheral Vascular,. The company previously held a Federal Firearms License and was an approved supplier on the Navy’s Qualified Bidders list for Aircrew Escape Propulsion Systems (AEPS)devices. The company is expert at manufacturing complex precision parts for gas generators, catapults, ballistic devices, and rocket motors. Nawed is new to the Phoenix market with his purchase of Continental Precision, but he is highly experienced in precision machining. In fact, Nawed is a Journeyman die and mold maker, having learned the trade in his home country of Canada. Fifteen years ago, in 2007, Nawed opened his own shop in Ontario, called Quality Machining and Automation (QMA). Initially, QMA machined only for the tool and die industry, but Nawed says that the goal was always to become one of the most complete shops in Ontario. QMA has managed well over 5,000 projects from start to finish over the last few years with just a small team of engineers and machinists headed by Prasad Reddy Mangireddygari, an experienced and energetic engineer. In 2016, Nawed purchased his first DMG Mori machine for QMA, the DMG Mori DMU 125 duoBLOCK five-axis machine. “This opened us A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 42 • July / Aug 2022

up to serve customers needing high precision parts that were medium to large size”, he said. Today, QMA is equipped with more than 12,000 square feet of state-of-the-art machinery and can run production quantities 24x7. Over the past decade, QMA has added automotive customers to its business, and through this new industry it became skilled in manufacturing for production. “One of our latest extremely cool projects is the Ford GT supercar, with only 1,350 Ford GT street cars planned. This third-generation Ford GT remains exclusive and highly exotic”, Nawed says, adding that his company in Toronto is manufacturing 12 parts for all 1,350 Ford GT supercars. Nawed has long wanted to expand his business into the United States, and in the past years, he looked into buying manufacturing entities in Texas, Kentucky, and Arizona. “There were 2 customers that drove my decision to expand my business in Arizona”, Nawed says. “QMA in Ontario is machining parts for Honeywell, and they have a very strong presence in Arizona, so expansion within this customer presented great possibilities. Second, Nikola came to us in Ontario for help on some of their parts. I am sure that they selected us due to our reputation in the automotive industry. Since Nikola is based

in Arizona, we determined that our expertise in automotive would be well received in Arizona, and Nikola is one of many electric vehicle manufacturers based in Arizona.” Once the decision to expand into Arizona was solidified, Nawed learned that Continental Precision was for sale. “It had the AS9100 certifications, some very key customers, and some outstanding machines, and I felt it was synergistic with QMA.” Nawed completed the purchase of the company and moved to Arizona in January of this year. Almost immediately after acquiring QMA, Nawed purchased the DMU 95 monoBLOCK 5-axis universal milling machine. With a X-axis travel of 37.4”, a Y-axis travel of 33.5”, and a Z-axis travel of 25.6”, a maximum workpiece height of 23.2” and maximum workpiece weight of 2204 lbs., Nawed says, “We can offer our customers in the Southwest the ability to manufacture some very large high precision parts, and this means we can open ourselves up to serving not just aerospace and DoD, but also automotive and medical industries.” He adds, “As we have a strong background in 5 axis machining, the DMU 95 monoBLOCK was a superior choice for our new business in Arizona. Both DMG and 5 axis offers us a proven technology; and we value its high accuracy and the rigidity of the machine. Our newest machine is ideal for heavy parts, as it enables all processes to be carried out on one machine.” Almost coincident with purchasing his new DMU 95 monoBLOCK, Nawed hired Greg Logan to support sales for the company. Greg, pictured above with Nawed, brings years of experience in the manufacturing industry, having sold machine tools and financing to customers in Arizona. With regards to growing the organization at Continental Precision, Nawed says, “I recognize how difficult it is to find skilled machinists both here and in Canada. At Continental Precision, we are open to young machinists or even those with a good work ethic and mechanic aptitude who don’t have any background in machining.” I mentioned that Nawed is a Journeyman machinist, and he brought his lead person and partner Prasad from Canada

to help grow the new business. “At Continental Precision, both Prasad and I can help aspiring machinists to be the best in the trade”, he adds. And, if you are an experienced machinist that relishes working with some of the best in class machines, CPI just might be your next great employer. A superior new (old) AS9100 certified machine shop is now available to those in need of precision machined parts, and especially if these are large parts.

Startup Will Manufacture, Research New Virus Filtration Tech At New Arizona Facility A minority-owned steel coating manufacturer focused on improving systems that can filter viruses from indoor air, is building a manufacturing plant in the Arizona town of Sahuarita, south of Tucson. The company, Steel Jupiter, said its 13,000-square-foot manufacturing, research and development facility at the Sahuarita Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Center (SAMTEC) will be operational by the end of this year with 15 new jobs to start with. Steel Jupiter says that its origins trace to early 2020 with a collaboration between researchers and industry experts from the U.S. and Europe looking for ways to prepare for and manage pandemics. Steel Jupiter was one result of that brainstorming and is focused on commercializing a proprietary coating technology that can be applied to masks, respirators or other air filtration media.

the technical resources at the state’s universities — in particular, the University of Arizona’s virus testing capabilities that can serve to provide independent testing of Steel Jupiter’s product. Arizona was also praised for its workforce and for the growth of innovation and business in the state. Joe Snell, president and CEO of regional economic development group Sun Corridor Inc., said that the new facility will have an economic impact of $27 million over the next five years. “The ripple effect of these highpaying jobs advancing Steel Jupiter’s technology will be felt across southern Arizona,” Snell said in a statement.

Two Valley Construction Projects Among Largest In The Nation Two Valley industrial construction projects are among the top 20 deals in the nation for 2022, according to a new report by Site Selection magazine. Intel Corp.’s $20 billion addition of two new fabs at its Ocotillo Campus in Chandler ranked No. 5 and Kore Power Inc.’s $500 million lithium-ion battery storage manufacturing facility in Buckeye came in at No. 19 on the list of top deals. Each project is expected to create 3,000 jobs.

Tellez said Steel Jupiter evaluated other locations and found SAMTEC to be a great facility and location for the company. The center has already attracted companies such as PowerPHotonic and Leonardo Electronics.

The magazine’s rankings are based on 2021 corporate end-user facility investment project data — specifically capital expenditure and job creation data — from the Conway Projects Database which is maintained by Site Selection publisher Conway Data.

The company said that Arizona was an attractive place to set up shop because of

Arizona’s semiconductor sector

“Steel Jupiter’s mission is to help make indoor air as free from viruses as possible,” said Carlos Tellez, founder, chairman and president of Steel Jupiter, in a statement. “Our product, developed by leading scientists, has the promise to significantly improve the effectiveness of HVAC filters and masks in filtering viruses from the air we breathe.”

continues to grow, and the magazine noted that the Valley is the fourth largest market in the U.S. for employees in the sector. In fact, this is the second year in a row that a major chipmaker project has appeared in the magazine’s rankings. Last year, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.’s $12 billion plant in north Phoenix — which remains on schedule for production to begin in 2024, company officials said — was the country’s largest project in the magazine’s survey. Site Selection noted, quoting Greater Phoenix Economic Council President and CEO Chris Camacho, that more than 300 total firms are evaluating the Phoenix region, and 45 of them are suppliers for semiconductors, representing 12,000 jobs and up to $60 billion in investment. The influx has also created a hiring squeeze for Arizona manufacturers. In connection with Kore Power’s facility, the magazine pointed out that it fits into Buckeye’s “Sustainable Valley” designs to be a hub for green tech. Site Selection quoted Kore’s CEO Lindsay Gorilla, who said Buckeye’s track record of supporting clean energy technology, along with its proximity to complementary industries, workforce and logistics capacity, as well as its pro-business environment, all made a difference in the decision. Automobile manufacturers took the top three positions on the annual list with Ford Motor Co.’s $5.6 billion investment to build the “BlueOval City,” a segment of an 11,000-job mega-plan with SK Innovation Co. for EV and battery production. The regional megasite will be located outside of Memphis in Stanton, Tennessee.

Greg Christensen, electric vehicle footprint director at Ford, stated the company considered nearly 100 potential sites before choosing West Tennessee. No. 2 went to Rivian Automotive Inc.’s $5 billion investment to build its own EV manufacturing facility in Social Circle, Georgia, with pledges to create 7,500 jobs. Rivian had been considering the Valley for that facility before finally settling on Georgia. Here’s what led to that decision. Ford also took the No. 3 position with its $5.8 billion investment alongside SK Innovation t o e s t a b l i s h t h e 1 , 5 0 0 - a c re “BlueOval SK Battery Park” battery manufacturing campus in Glendale, Kentucky. The other half of the aforementioned Tennessee investment, the companies have said they will create 5,000 jobs. Production is expected to begin in 2025.

Honeywell Partnership Developing Tiny Electric Motor For Urban Transport Jet A two-year-old partnership that Phoenix-based Honeywell Aerospace entered with Japanese company Denso Corp. is yielding fruit in the form of a tiny electric motor the two companies are developing for a jet being built by another aerospace company, Lilium. Based in Germany, Lilium is working to develop the first all-electric vertical takeoff and landing jet for use in urban centers as part of regional transportation systems, and the Honeywell-Denso partnership is part of that effort. Honeywell and Denso have already been working on the project for nearly two years after signing an alliance agreement in 2019 to design, develop, produce and sell electric propulsion system products for aircraft. Lilium has also been part of the development process during that time. During their collaboration, the two companies have come up with the prototype of an approximately 4-kilogram motor that has an output of 100 kilowatts. It consists of a rotor and stator that have been built small and light to meet Lilium’s goals. It is expected to have none of the operating emissions associated with commercial A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

• 46 • July / Aug 2022

jet engines, Lilium said, and it will operate with an air-cooled design that is easier to maintain and saves operating costs over traditional liquid cooling systems. Also, the rotor-stator combination has a centrifugal configuration, which Lilium said lowers its weight, manufacturing costs and susceptibility to damage from foreign objects. Stéphane Fymat, Honeywell Aerospace vice president and general manager of urban air mobility, said the project will help usher in the age of electric flight. “Lilium’s innovation, combined with our experience in aerospace, will help to bring about cleaner, more sustainable ways for people to travel for centuries to come,” Fymat said in a statement. For Denso, known as an a u t o m o t i v e s u p p l i e r, t h e partnership takes the company toward a new horizon. “The e-motor co-development solidifies Denso’s successful entry into the aerospace industry, giving us the opportunity to increase vehicle electrification not only on land, but also in the sky,” Jiro Ebihara, Denso’s senior executive office rand head of its Electrification Systems Business Group, said in a statement. “This supports our efforts to create a more efficient and sustainable future.” Lilium has also been working with Honeywell since 2021 on its integrated flight deck and flight control computers. Honeywell’s system will be responsible for controlling the jet’s moveable parts, including the 36 control surfaces and ducted fans that provide its maneuverability in each stage of flight.

Engineering company BlueHalo has been awarded a $1.4 billion government contract from the U.S. Space Force for the satellite communication augmentation resource (SCAR) program. According to the Space Force, the SCAR program "will address the critical U.S. Space Command requirement to rapidly, responsively and affordably augment satellite control capacity for the satellite control network, as it provides tactical control links to U.S. Space Force satellites." BlueHalo sector president Dan Gillings said "this program creates 60 new engineering and manufacturing jobs and presents a unique opportunity for the customer, BlueHalo, and key suppliers to be co-located within the Albuquerque area.” Based in Arlington, Virginia, BlueHalo employs 300 people in Albuquerque, spokeswoman Tiffany Sevieri told Business First in March. In a statement, Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) called the $1.4 billion contract an investment that further positions New Mexico "as the go-to destination for all things space." BlueHalo, which previously planned to build a 200,000-square-foot development at the planned Max Q business park in Albuquerque, has instead set its sights on an existing building at 10800 Gibson Blvd. SE, among others. The facility is the company's fourth in Albuquerque. In total, the company now occupies 163,000 square feet in Albuquerque. The Albuquerque City Council on June 22 is scheduled to consider incentives for Blue Halo related to its Albuquerque expansion. Project documents show the company has applied for a $16 million industrial revenue bond (IRB) and for $2.5 million in Local Economic Development Act incentives (LEDA). IRBs are bonds issued by a governmental entity to finance economic development projects. LEDA incentives are used to support expanding businesses. By Collin Krabbe - Reporter

$600 Million Gas Plant Will Support Phoenix Semiconductor Facility Major industrial gas company Linde PLC is planning to invest $600 million for a plant to support the massive Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. facility in Phoenix. Last fall, the company announced it had signed a long-term deal with TSMC for the supply of industrial gases to the $12 billion manufacturing facility in north Phoenix generally located on the southwest corner of 43rd Avenue and Dove Valley Road. Linde said it will build, own and operate a complex of on-site plants to supply ultra-high-purity nitrogen, oxygen and argon to TSMC. According to APS, which recently worked to relocate three major sets of transmission lines for TSMC, the city of Phoenix is contributing $205 million for infrastructure improvements to the area, while the TSMC project is expected to result in a $38 billion economic output over the next 20 years. In January 2020, Linde Inc., the successor company to the 2019 merger of Praxair Inc. and Linde PLC, proposed its expansion into Arizona with a new facility

Kevin Wolfe With Patrick Ellison, owner of Ellison Machinery, Haas Dealer

The management team of Kevin Wolfe,James Buchanan Jr., and James Buchanan III “If you need AS9100 certified high precision parts manufactured, particularly if they are large diameter (up to 40”) and/or are made with exotic metals, why aren’t you using Powill Manufacturing?”, asks General Manager Kevin Wolfe. The Veteran-Owned company, which celebrated 6 decades in business in 2019, manufactures tight tolerance parts largely for the commercial and military aerospace industries. Of late, Powill has added customers manufacturing rockets, a few in the oil and gas industry and the US Marines. They are a long term supplier to 6 Prime contractors and they support an additional 80 customers throughout North American and Europe. 3rd generation family member Jimmy Buchanan III, says, “In addition to the primes, we support a large number of customers who come to us for grinding and gun drilling.” 63 years ago, William Ponath financed and along with his son Werner, launched Powill Manufacturing in a 3500 square foot facility with used machines that he purchased for $11,000. Two months later, his son in law James Buchanan Jr. joined the company and learned the trade. In 1962, Mr. Ponath Sr. passed away and 6 years later his son Werner passed. James Buchanan Jr. proceeded to run the business. When in his late teens, James Buchanan III joined Powill and is now running the company. It is not uncommon for employees to have their family members join the Powill team and this is truly a testament to how Powill treats its people. James Buchanan III’s 2 oldest daughters are now employed by the company and they represent Generation 4 of the family in the business. Today, the company resides in a nearly 50,000 square foot facility that houses some of the world’s most advanced CNC equipment and CAD/ CAM technology. The company offers its customers milling (including A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

5 axis), turning (including hard turning), gun drilling, honing, wire EDM, grinding, pressure /leak testing, and assembly, all performed by skilled machinists. It really is all about people. “We have very low turnover (~3%), and a significant number of our employees have 7+ years with our company”, Buchanan Jr. says. He continued, “During the Pandemic, we experienced a downturn, since our customers were largely in the aerospace industry. We knew we didn’t want to lose our valuable team members, so rather than have a layoff, we reduced everyone’s hours to 32.” Today, the company is back to full time hours, and Powill was able to retain their team. Employees stay at Powill because they are treated fairly and with respect. Kevin says, “Two of our recent hires came to work for Powill with no experience in manufacturing, and so they started in the maintenance department as janitors. Over time, we saw their work ethic and their desire to learn. Today, they are machinists in training.” Employees at Powill feel empowered. Kevin says, “We lost money on a recent job. Rather than go back to the customer to let them know we would need to price the job higher going forward, we let the team analyze what went wrong and how we could move forward with the job priced as is, while still making money. It turns out on this particular job, several people didn’t follow Powill processes. When you have an issue, you should make the issue known to your lead. The lead has

the ability to reach out to the Engineering group and to the Quality department. Through this process, we are able to determine the root cause of why the job is losing money.” He adds, “For this particular job, we determined that we costed the project accurately, and therefore we knew we could make it again profitably. It was very beneficial to involve the team, so that they could determine the favorable outcome.” The Powill team considers Patrick Ellison, owner of Ellison Machinery, a partner to their business. “We’ve been buying machines from Patrick for decades now”, Buchanan III says. He continues, “20 years ago, we wouldn’t have thought about putting a Haas Powill Manufactured Parts machine into our shop. I just viewed our parts as too difficult, the alloys particularly cumbersome, and the tolerances we needed too tight for the economically priced Haas machines.” He says, “We purchased our first Haas VF-4-Vertical mills 12 years ago, and they ran for 10 years without any problems. If you can machine the kinds of parts that we make on a Haas machine, you can run any parts on the machines.”

Grandfather and Grandson work side by side at Powill

The Buchanans with Partner/ Supplier Patrick Ellison

More recently, the Powill team purchased 2 Haas lathes (Haas ST20Y). Kevin says that the Haas lathes are working well for his shop. Buchanan III says, “In our manufacturing world, customer support for the machines we purchase is paramount in our decision making. With Ellison Machinery, we get outstanding customer support. If we have an issue with a machine, Ellison typically has a local technician out to our facility same day or within 24 hours. And because the machines are manufactured here in the US, in California, the part needed to do a machine repair is almost always in stock. This isn’t the case with other machine tool dealers, and in one instance, we had a machine down for 4 months.” Patrick says, “Today, at Ellison Machinery we have 2 Service Managers and 10 Technicians, all dedicated to keeping our customers’ machines up and running.”

Peoria-Based TYR Tactical Signs Big Contract With Danish Military For Body Armor Peoria-based TYR Tactical, a body armor manufacturer for the military and law enforcement, recently inked a $200 million agreement with the Danish Ministry of Defense. The 10-year contract, which was signed April 25, will provide each soldier in the Danish military with TYR Tactical’s stateof-the-art body armor, which the company will manufacture in Peoria. The new contract is expected to bring 100 new advanced manufacturing jobs to the company, as well as new facilities to Peoria, according to TYR Tactical. The company, which currently has about 270 employees, produces body armor, ballistic full tactical entry vests, plate carriers, load carriage equipment, belts and assault gear, according to its website. The new agreement also continues the company’s ongoing relationship with the Danish military, which has been supplied products by TYR Tactical for more than 10 years, TYR said. “Our Danish friends have been incredible partners in innovation, working with us to protect those who protect us,” said Jason Beck, CEO of TYR Tactical and a Peoria mayoral candidate, in a statement. “We are thrilled to continue our long-term partnership with the Danish military, and our friendship with the Danish people.” The company said “extensive testing” over the years has been applied to the design of armor and carriers that will be used to outfit the Danish military. The body armor will also include full coverage designed for male and female anatomy. TYR Tactical currently has two manufacturing buildings in Peoria with plans to build two more in the West Valley suburb near Loop 101 and Olive Avenue. The third building will include a warehouse space for raw materials, a machine shop and space to outfit vehicles with hard armor, the Phoenix Business Journal previously reported. TYR Tactical said it continues to grow with more contracts from federal and foreign governments. In 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation awarded TYR Tactical a multimillion dollar overt integrated armor contract, the second contract it had been awarded in a row by the FBI. Local and state agencies such as the Arizona Department of Public Safety, city of Glendale and Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have also purchased equipment from TYR Tactical. The company’s headquarters is at 9330 N. 91st Ave. in Peoria. It also has facilities in North Carolina and Canada. By Audrey Jensen – Phoenix Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

Telecommunications Company Viasat Plans To Add 1,500 Jobs In Tempe Viasat, a satellite communications company based in California, is expanding in Tempe and will develop over 300,000 square feet of space at the ASU Research Park, where it plans to grow its headcount by about 1,500 employees. The company already has a presence at the ASU Research Park, near Loop 101 and Warner Road. The site is one of Arizona State University’s “innovation zones.” The land is owned by the university and office space is leased to private companies.

Research Park, as well as affordable cost, availability of talent and a favorable business climate led them to expand in Tempe after evaluating several other markets for expansion. Viasat’s expansion will take up one of the last two remaining development sites at the park, which has about 50 corporate tenants.

Viasat has plans for three phases of new development on 16 acres near the middle of the ASU Research Park, said Morgan Olsen, chief financial officer of ASU.

“We had been looking for just the right tenant to take the site,” Olsen said, noting that the buildings at the 320-acre park are 98% occupied. “Occupancy is very high; this has been a very popular site. Viasat is a great employer, these are high-quality job opportunities and we are excited about their enhanced level of commitment.”

The first phase will begin construction this summer and is scheduled to be completed by June 2024. It will include 135,000 square feet of space with an outdoor atrium and a parking structure. Future phases will include an additional parking garage, a conference area and a café.

Most of the office buildings at the park are built to suit a specific tenant. Web hosting company GoDaddy recently moved its headquarters to the ASU Research Park, and other companies with a large presence there include Amazon, Edward Jones and Amkor Technology.

Bob Rota, vice president of facilities and security for Viasat, said the jobs will include engineering positions, especially software engineering, and operational and back-office roles. Company officials said the existing company presence at the ASU A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

When looking for tenants for the park, ASU seeks companies that would make a long-term commitment and would benefit from a relationship with the university, as well as create job opportunities for ASU graduates and consulting opportunities for faculty.

• AS9100 Revision D certification so that they can support Aerospace customers (Planned certification for mid-summer 2022) • ISO 13485 certification so that they can support customers manufacturing medical devices. • Automation, including their newest TRUMP tube laser cutter • Electro-mechanical assembly/Turn-key solutions that include retail packaging. AEI is currently ISO:9001-2015 certified but recognized the need for additional certifications. Keith says that before embarking upon the AS9100 and ISO:13485 certifications, they performed a Gap Analysis to compare their current state with an ideal one. With the ISO 9001 processes in place, they determined that adding the two new certifications would not overly burden the company and would open up new opportunities. In particular, the ISO 13485 certification would be a differentiator they could offer customers in the medical device industry. Ron says, “We’ve embraced automation for years, but I would characterize it as low level. About two years ago, we recognized that the absence of workers in our industry wasn’t improving, and we knew that we would have to invest in true automation machine tools. Such tools could enable us to run 24x7 unattended.” Recent automation machines include: • The Amada C1 is a high-production punch laser combination machine with a 44-station flexible turret with tapping, forming, and auto index. Keith says, “The C1 offers full automation and self-loading, and with the C1, we purchased the ASR 3015N T.K., which is one of AMADA’s most advanced material processing systems providing fully automated raw material to a stacked product in one system.” • The Amada EG 6013 servo-electric press brakes an ultra-high precision, highspeed compact bending solution. It uses the world’s first dual servo-electric drive – allowing for high speed and high precision. “Our Amada robotic bending solution combines the E.G., series press brake, an advanced bending

robot, and a high-capacity automatic tool changer system, again allowing for 24x7 automation.” Keith says. The company’s newest purchase is their tube laser cutter, the TRUMPF TruLaser Tube 3000 fiber tube-cutting machine that offers the latest laser tube cutting technology. Ron adds, “The TruLaser Tube 3000 gives us the ability to offer a versatile processing of tubes and profiles to our customers and is a superior substitute for conventional tube processing steps such as milling, drilling, and sawing.” The addition of dedicated Integration assembly space has allowed AEI to offer our clients solutions for commercial and retail packaged products. Our wide array of kiosk platforms that service wayfinding, point of sale, ATM, and card/ticket dispensing are just a few of our offerings, and as this division grows, we will continue to expand our capabilities, so keep updated by going to www.AEIFAB.com A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

“Finding a precision machine shop in the US that makes products that range from molds to shooting parts is almost unheard of today, and this is what you get with Pro-Tek Industries, a shop in Prescott Valley, Arizona”, says Jim Alles, Territory Sales Manager at Sodick, Inc. He adds, “In addition to mold making and injection molding, Pro-Tek also offers in-house design, surface grinding, CNC milling, as well as wire and sinker EDM.” “The only thing we outsource is mold polishing, and we make parts in quantities that range from 1 to 600,000”, adds Dave Bergfeld, co-founder of Pro-Tek with his brother Phil. Phil and Dave spent the first decade of their adult lives learning the trade at a number of shops in Southern California, including injection molding companies as well as tool building and EDM entities, where they learned tool and die making, CNC machining, injection molding and CNC programming, Dave says, “We learned a lot from our employers, and in some cases, we gained knowledge on how things should be done, rather than how they were done.” When the Bergfeld brothers helped their newly retired parents (all pictured to the left) move from Southern CA to Prescott Valley, a small mountain town in Arizona 85 miles north of Phoenix, the two made the decision to open their own shop there. “We knew we would never be able to afford to start our own business in Southern California, and we loved Prescott Valley from the start”, Dave says. And so, the 2 Bergfelds launched Pro-Tek Industries 17 years ago, in 2006. “There was only one other tool & die shop in the area, and we have a great partnership with that shop, so it’s been pretty fun”, Dave says. Pro-Tek Industries builds not only full production injection molds, but also bridge and prototype molds, extrusion dies & precision machining fixtures, as well as inspection gages and assembly fixtures. Feature rich suites of Creo and Esprit CAD/CAM software, as well as a pair of injection molding machines round out their service offerings. Over the past decade, the company has grown from its initial A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

bay to tripling their size in square footage. Their customers are not just local; they also come from the states of Washington, Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania, as well as Mexico. “We’ve offered our customers EDM, both sinker and wire, for many years now, as its one of our specialties”, Dave says, “and we’ve run many different brands of EDM machines. But, neither of us had ever run a Sodick EDM.” With all the great feedback the Bergfelds heard about the Sodicks from their colleagues and even customers, they wanted one when the need for a new machine arose. Sodick changed their distribution model in Arizona and went direct to customers (eliminating distributors) in March of 2021. With this transition, long term Sodick employee Jim Alles was chartered with supporting customers in Arizona and Southern California. Jim says, “Sodick has a number of EDM machines in Prescott, and I was in the area meeting with other customers. I introduced myself to the Bergfelds. In our initial meeting, I shared some of the differentiators of the Sodick EDM machines.” Dave said. “Everyone we know who has a Sodick EDM has great things to say about their machines — they tell us about their incredibly user friendly interface and the overall reliability of the machines.” Jim adds, “I think one of the reasons our GUI is so well designed is that it was developed in-house for EDM machines by a company (Sodick) that specializes in EDM. It isn’t a user interface designed by a 3rd party.” Jim says, “Last summer, Dave and Phil made the decision to purchase the Sodick AD35L Sinker EDM. This particular machine features Sodick’s Linear Motor Technology. Sodick created an improved basic machine structure with optimized rib arrangements; this increases rigidity by approximately 70%. With the new AD35L, machine deformation is minimized, allowing for optimum performance at highspeeds and rapid acceleration of the linear motors.” Pro-Tek took delivery of the Sodick AD35L last fall, and Sodick provided the company with 2.5 days of on-site

training, Dave says. “We find that Sodick taking distribution direct has been such a plus for our company. With our older Sinker EDM from another manufacturer, we had issues for months with service. The number of phone calls I had to make to get parts and the run around I experienced was a nightmare. With our new Sodick AD35L Sinker EDM, if I have questions or issues, I just call Jim. For a small shop, this simplified customer support contact is invaluable. We won’t have to chase after service with our Sodick, and this is vital for a small shop like ours.” Dave continues, “I estimate that getting a new machinist up to speed on the Sodick, with its incredibly user friendly and intuitive Graphical User Interface, is probably 50% faster than it took on non-Sodick Sinker EDMs. As we are continually seeking talented tool makers and machinists to add to our shop, the LN2 control makes the learning curve much easier with inexperienced operators.”

Rigid Linear Motor Driven EDMs Sodick linear motors are arranged flat, so that the magnets and coils can be directly attached to structural elements such as the machine table and bed. The linear motor directly transmits the driving forces to the machine with no losses and maintains high responsiveness for a long period of time. Jim says, “Linear motor demonstrates superiority in transition speed and positioning precision compared to ball screw motors. Also, since there is zero machinery contact, it offers high response and long-term stability. No other EDM brand offers anything comparable to Sodick’s patented linear motor technology. It’s developed and manufactured in-house. It offers unbeatable performance, accuracy, and is maintenance free, even after 10 years of heavy use.” He added, “In my years at Sodick, I have never had a linear motor fail.”

10-Year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee Jim says another advantage to Sodick’s customers is the 10-Year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee on their rigid linear motor driven Wire and Sinker EDMs. He says, “We guarantee that you will not lose any accuracy within the rigid linear motor drives. When using ball screws, the motor drives start to lose accuracy after only two years.” Zero Electrode Wear Technology Jim says, “Sodick's unique zero electrode wear technology is standard on all Sodick Sinker EDM machines. This technology allows for the EDM of steel materials with virtually zero electrode wear when using graphite or copper electrodes. Less electrode wear results in fewer electrodes, saving on production costs”. Dave agrees and adds, “On a recent project we made 23 electrodes, and had 8 electrodes left over. If we were using a Sodick competitive machine, we would have had to use the other 8 electrodes. Our Sodick is helping to reduce our graphite costs, it is reducing our polishing costs, and in the end, it is saving us money plus time. In fact, our graphite usage is ~60% of what it was pre-Sodick.” “Seeing is believing”, Dave says, adding “Sodick has done nothing but save us time and money since it hit our floor.” No-Flush Technology In a typical EDM machine, as spark discharges melt or vaporize small particles of the workpiece, the particles are flushed away, and the electrode advances. The rigid linear motor drive mechanism generates an ultra-high-speed pumping effect efficiently removing chips, gas and carbon which exist between the electrode and the work piece. Therefore, machining can be performed without the need for flushing.

About Sodick Since 1976, Sodick has manufactured over 60,000 EDM machines and over 50,000 rigid linear motor driven EDMs. Today, Sodick is the world’s largest EDM m a n u f a c t u r e r, w i t h s i x manufacturing plants across Japan and Thailand, and their annual tool production capacity exceeds 3,500 machines. Our machines are used for the production of dies, molds and other various applications which cannot be produced by standard machining methods. Sodick’s North American headquarters is located in Schaumburg, IL. The US headquarters houses a $5 million parts and consumables i n v e n t o r y t h a t e n s u re s consumable and replacement parts are readily available. Experienced engineers handle customer support and all support calls are documented and entered into a CRM database, resulting in the highest degree of customer satisfaction.

the complexity of becoming CMMC/ITAR compliant.

Firehawk describes a hybrid engine as one that uses both solid and liquid propellants. The advantage of these engines are that they are immune to accidental detonation. The company says such engines have historically had performance disadvantages, but it said those have been solved with Firehawk’s 3D printed rocket fuel.

Electric Vehicles Not Only Drive Down Fuel Costs. In Arizona, They Drive Up Job Growth Across the U.S., and especially in Arizona where cars are a huge part of what makes our economy work, the need for reliable and affordable transportation is ever-present. As world conflicts continue to drive up the prices of gasoline, now is the right time to consider how to save money when fueling our cars. Electric vehicles are a big part of the answer — and a little secret between you and me, they’re just better. The Investment in Infrastructure and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides $5 billion in funding for states to build electric vehicle charging stations on highway corridors. The funding that would be obligated for Arizona just this fiscal year is $11,320,762. The benefits for communities across Arizona are big ones. Consider: • • • •

Electric vehicles save drivers money since electricity is cheaper than gasoline Fewer vehicles that run on gasoline will mean less demand for oil Electric vehicles don’t pollute the air with smog, which causes painful and expensive health problems Polluting less will help us slow down climate change

The program to build electric vehicle charging stations over the next five years is the needed spark for infrastructure investment that will increase economic efficiency and job growth for years to come, just as the creation of the interstate highway system did in the 1950s. Obviously, the easier it gets to charge an electric vehicle, the more people will want to buy them. This is good for Arizona for another reason – three A2Z MANUFACTURING SW

different manufacturing companies are building electric vehicles in Arizona. Auto manufacturers tend to buy parts from other companies nearby to their factories, which means that Arizona has begun to develop a new high-tech manufacturing cluster. These are jobs that pay well and provide benefits. Congress has the opportunity now to pass a jobs and climate bill that will make it easier for Americans to afford new and used electric vehicles with tax credits from $4,000 to $12,500 as long as they are made in America. The extreme weather events that have challenged our country over the past few years have shown us that we cannot wait any longer to address climate change. The American spirit of innovation tells us that if we address climate change in a smart way, we can improve our economy and our quality of life at the same time. More good jobs. Cleaner air. Cheaper energy. Continued investment in electric vehicles will bring these benefits to Arizona and the nation. The Grand Canyon State stands poised to lead the way. By Joel Levin
